HSC English Tutoring Inner West Sydney

Our tutors explain things clearly – even the hard stuff.

While High School students already have the expectation that the HSC exams are going to be a challenge, the two subjects that are their biggest worries are Maths (not surprising there!) and English. As citizens of an English-language country like Australia, it is ironic to say the least that Highschoolers are having difficulty with the subject at the same degree as Math.

Ah, but we at Step Ahead Coaching – an HSC English tutoring Inner West Sydney-based center – know better. Because the HSC English exam is not just about knowing correct spelling and having good grammar; it’s about having good comprehension and analysis of English texts. All the more reason why you should start your review for the exams RIGHT NOW!

Here are the reasons why you should start your HSC English exam review now.


Improve Your Spelling and Grammar

If you have gone through Grade School and High School and still have spelling, grammar, and punctuation issues, then you need to get them fixed now before you take the HSC English exam. This is because it is expected that you have already mastered these core units so that you can come up with well-written academic writing.

Even if you have good comprehension, if you cannot convey your thoughts using these basic units, it can affect your overall exam score.

At Step Ahead Coaching, the tutors at our HSC English tutoring Inner West Sydney-based center will conduct a thorough review of these basics through writing exercises. By catching the weak areas early, we can ensure that your Highschooler will show significant improvement in his/her writing by the time the exam comes.

You Need to Read the Assigned Texts for the HSC English Exam

The HSC English exam requires a student to read, watch, or listen to certain assigned texts. In the past exams, these texts include novels, short stories, dramas/plays, screenplays, non-fiction, and even podcasts.


Months before the exam, it is strongly advised for a student to have read the assigned texts twice. During tutoring sessions, these texts will be discussed by our tutors with greater emphasis on comprehension, analysis, and discovering the author’s truths and messages within.

To improve proficiency in English, Step Ahead Coaching tutors don’t just concentrate on the written word. They also conduct verbal exchanges of ideas. Whether written or spoken English, this also gives our tutors the opportunity to continue making corrections in the basic units, especially grammar, as often as necessary.

Creative Writing and Essay Assessment

One of the advantages of attending an HSC English exam tutoring session or workshop with Step Ahead Coaching is that we offer assessments on essay and creative writing. Our tutors ask our students to write essays, stories, or poems based on the assigned texts for the HSC English exam. They not only check any errors in the basics; they also assess the presentation of ideas, the analysis of key points, and the coherent and logical flow of thoughts and arguments.

Let the tutors at our HSC English tutoring Inner West Sydney-based center help your teen get good marks at the HSC English exam. Contact us today at Step Ahead Coaching to learn more about our English study plans and workshops!

My experience at Step Ahead coaching can cleanly be summarised as a positive one. The teaching staff is highly engaging and well equipped with different levels of explanation for each topic covered. I would highly recommend their teaching services to anyone looking to gain assistance in any area of school learning with classes covering Mathematics and English all the way through to Chemistry and Physics, all of which I actually attended myself. Definitely turned my marks around and helped increase my dedication to my studies.

Step Ahead is by far the best tutoring center in Sydney. They have the best staff who assist you in a variety of subjects. I have gone to Step Ahead ever since I was in year 2 and now I am in my first year in university, doing something I have always wanted, but thought it was too difficult to achieve. Coming to Step Ahead allows you to make out of school connections, with different types of students and create new friendships. Thank you Step Ahead. Without your enduring support, I wouldn't have gotten this far!
